K.J. Yossman A documentary about Eddie Hall, the strongman and “Expendables 4” actor, has been acquired for worldwide theatrical release and streaming by sports media company Generation Iron. “Taming The Beast – The Emptiness Within” is a feature-length doc from Switzerland-based Jeridoo Universe about British strongman Hall.
“The film follows Hall, the world’s strongest man, as he learns how to embrace his mental health challenges by confronting his inner demons and dealing with his biggest failure to date, which ultimately changes his life,” reads the logline. “The film explores Hall’s struggles with depression and mental health and brings to light how famous athletes and celebrities struggle with these challenges.” Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone make cameos in the documentary as they offer Hall both mentorship and friendship. Actor Gabriel Luna (“The Last of Us”) and boxer Katie Luna also appear in the film.
Hall, who set a world record dead lift in 2016, lifting 500 kg (1,100 lb), is a retired strongman and 2017 winner of the World’s Strongest Man competition. As well as the “Expendables” franchise he is set to appear in “Winter’s Inferno” and “Romeo.” He also hosts YouTube channel Eddie Hall The Beast, which boasts almost 3 million subscribers. Chris Michael Fretwell and Josias Tschanz directed the doc with help from second unit director Matt Bell (“Terminator 6”).
Ali Faharani is director of photography while Mike Jackson is lead editor. The film was executive produced by Guido Baechler alongside Generation Iron’s co-founders Edwin Mejia Jr. and Vlad Yudin.

Rafa Sales Ross Guest Contributor Oscar-winning actor Halle Berry had a strike of inspiration on the flight to Saudi Arabia, where she gave a career-spanning conversation at the third edition of the Red Sea Film Festival. The flight, she said, led her to figure out what she wants to direct next: “It’s a love story at its core but it deals with the supernatural, time travel and the future.” This will mark Berry’s sophomore feature after 2020’s MMA drama “Bruised.” When asked about her first directing experience, the actor was frank, labelling the entire process “hell.” “Because I was a woman, and a Black woman, the treatment I received and the things I had to put up with were unconscionable,” she said.

Owen Gleiberman Chief Film Critic “Christmas is not about money,” says Pepper (Jillian Bell), the passive-aggressive Christmas store elf in “Candy Cane Lane.” “Except that it is.” She could almost be describing Christmas movies. From the start, they’ve paired a celebration of the Christmas spirit, in all its enveloping toastiness, with a theme of raw economic desperation. You can trace this right back to the original Christmas movie — “A Christmas Carol,” and by that I don’t even mean the assorted film versions (though I grew up with them and especially loved the 1951 version with Alastair Sim) but the Charles Dickens novella, published in 1843, which essentially invented the modern Christmas.
